From stunning sunsets over Barnstaple to meeting the Dartmoor ponies, we have 14 reasons that prove Devon is the prettiest county…

1. We love a challenging hike through the meadows in north Devon…

2. …and the coastal paths along some of Devon’s prettiest beaches.

3. Lewtrenchard Manor is the perfect destination for a weekend away…

4. …and the long country roads are a good excuse to absorb the beautiful vistas.

5. Treat yourself spending the day shopping in Exeter’s city centre…

6. …or strolling through Totnes’ streets on a peaceful evening.

7. We love sitting by the River Dart and watching the world pass by…

8. …and enjoying the sunset over Barnstaple.

9. Early morning scenic dog walks along the coast…

10. …bumping into Dartmoor’s beautiful ponies.

11. Cosy cottages nestled in the picturesque countryside…

12. …whiling away the day with friends on the pebbled beach of Budleigh.

13. Going fishing at Axmouth harbour…

14. …before dining at one of Devon’s restaurants with a view.
